You can't run a GUI browser without running X.

We should clarify for satimis that he only needs to run an X11 server on the machine he is SSHing from. The FreeBSD box does not need to running X11.

Personally, I haven't found a good way to work out the minimal X11 installation needed for building and running clients (like Firefox) without ending up building and installing (and thus maintaining) stuff that I don't need (like an X11 server or window managers). If I had a better handle on how to examine dependencies, I could probably do a cleaner installation.
